Rodney Rudolph manages Palmer Bus Service of Little Falls, MN. Rodney has been in the bus business since 1978 and with Palmer Bus Service since 2000. Rodney’s family is a big part of his life. Rodney and his wife were married in 1982 and have two sons who live nearby in houses that the family has worked together to build. Rodney’s passion is mountain snowmobiling and he rarely misses going out west to ride. It started as a family vacation in 2005 and has grown to a group of friends that have come to love the mountains as well. Places they have snow-mobiled or, as they say in Alaska snow machined include- Hatchers pass AK ,Togwotee WY, Cooke City MT, Island Park ID, and West Yellowstone MT.

The best part of Rodney’s job is the people. Even though he is a quiet person who does a lot more listening than talking him still gets much enjoyment talking with everyone from management to the drivers to the students on the various bus routes that he runs. There is always an enjoyable story that brings a smile to his face.
